|Me on a cloudy day at the Santa Monica Pier|
Back to California folks! I still have many photos and videos to share of our annual January trip to sunny California.
Today the photos are of the day we spent at the fabled Santa Monica Pier.

This is the second year we have visited California. This is our annual tradition now, to "punch a hole in winter" and visit sunny California. However, this year there wasn't so much sun in sunny California but we had a good time anyway. Matter of fact, Pat and I always have a good time wherever we go. We're good traveling buddies.

We don't have any set schedule of places we want to see prior to our flight out to California. We just meet up in Philadelphia, take the five hour flight, land at LAX, rent a car at Enterprise Car Rental, check in at the Hollywood Bed and Breakfast and go from there. Our only "must" is to eat at the Veggie Grill at 8000 Sunset Boulevard, right across from the legendary Chateau Marmot hotel.
Last year, we made it a point, actually I made it a point to touch the Pacific Ocean. Just because I live so near the Atlantic Ocean here. That we did. Regular followers of my blog probably remember that "Ron and Pat Show" video we made of that toe dipping adventure. When we were at the Santa Monica Beach last year I saw the famous Santa Monica Pier but we were too late. It was just about to close. So this year we got to Santa Monica earlier so we could partake of the Santa Monica Pier.

So how did I like it? Of course I loved the Santa Monica Pier. I would go back again. Now next year's goal will be to make it to Venice Beach.

So many places to see, so little time.
